The EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase ends

The EU-funded EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project comes to a close today after four years of hard work by the entire team. EISCAT_3D is now poised to proceed to an Implementation Phase, pending funding commitments from the interested national research councils.

EISCAT would like to thank everybody that have been involved in this project for making it as successful as it has been.

EISCAT_3D Technical Meeting in Kiruna, 5 November 2013

A meeting took place at Space Campus, Kiruna, on 5 November with EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase participants working on technical aspects of the radar system.

This meeting was motivated by the fact that since with less than one year remaining of the Preparatory Phase, it's time to make sure that the different Work Packages finishes on schedule. In addition, feedback from some major funding applications was expected shortly and, assuming positive outcome, there would be little time to get a fully production-ready design of the system.
